Queen Boadicea II helped to evacuate British soldiers from Dunkirk in 1940
Gloucester Waterways Museum is celebrating the 70th anniversary of Dunkirk aboard the Queen Boadicea II.
It is 70 years since the D-Day landings, and in honour the museum will be running 1940's themed boat trips.
They will take place on Monday, 31 May at 12pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm from the quay side outside the museum.
It was hoped that the vessel would be able to return to Dunkirk for the celebrations but the museum was unable to raise the £15,000 needed.
Built in 1936, Queen Boadicea II was one of the 'Little Ships' who joined the volunteer flotilla to sail across the channel in 1940 and rescue soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk.
During the museum's celebrations, visitors will be able to 'step back in time' aboard the vessel which will be decorated for the occasion.
There will also be an opportunity to sing along to the music of Vera Lynn.
Inside the museum there will be a small 1940's exhibition.
